serving trays are pretty much the last thing i thought i’d ever blog about, because they are the most boring of the kitchen¬†paraphernalia¬†right? we could make a list i guess. anyway, these ones from svenskt tenn with original designs by architect josef frank are rad. i’m happy to know there are some seriously cool trays out there because i love using them myself – especially when making tea, let’s get our sophistication on. plus sometimes i just get tired of carrying three to four cups in my hands and nimbly avoiding bumping into things that are likely to cause a spill of precious brew.

ps: their textiles are as amazing.

    Oh my goodness, I love these patterns. Especially the blue and white. I’m a sucker for blue and white.

    So happy to see someone else who loves Svenskt Tenn!!! I almost got the last pattern in coasters for nostalgic picnic feelings :D and last minute changed my mind for the white elephants on black — makes me so happy to look at them!

    these are so pretty, I’ve got a strange fondness for serving trays. I don’t know if you read the Spot the dog books when you were little, but my grandmother bought me a spot serving tray when I was little. So cool.

    Yes! Scandinavians love their trays. Ikea does them as does Jobs Handtryck, Marimekko too. I’ve been wanting one for ages.
